In south Finistère on the border with Morbihan, Névez is preserved in its woodland setting. It looks out over the Atlantic; to the west is the Iroise sea, and to the north the English Channel.
The département offers a mosaic of landscapes and is home to an amazing wealth of wildlife and plants.
Névez is ideally situated, offering visitors a great choice of sport and leisure activities all year round: strolling, walking, sailing, riding…
It’s also a little town that knows how to enjoy itself! At all times of the year, concerts, folk evenings and festivals are organised in the neighbourhood.
We also boast a very rich history: a village of typical thatched cottages, chapels, fishermen’s houses, standing stones, museums, chateaux and monuments. A wealth of heritage unfolds at every turn.
With a high quality network of toll-free roads, Névez is within easy reach of all the regional tourist spots. To the north, Océanopolis in Brest (1 hour), the Armorique regional natural park (1½ hours), the Pointe du Raz, France’s westernmost point (1 hour) and eastwards, Vannes (1 hour), Quiberon, Carnac and the lines of megalithic standing stones (1½ hours),
Across the sea the Glénan isles, Ouessant, Molène, Sein and Belle-Ile are a few nautical miles away.
